    Some of the most powerful testimonies in the pro-life movement come from former abortionists. These are doctors who have committed abortions, sometimes thousands of them. They know more about abortion than anyone else. Like former abortion workers, they were insiders in the abortion industry and have seen everything that goes on in abortion facilities. One former abortionist, Kathi A. Aultman, has dedicates her life to protecting the preborn. She has testified in support of pro-life legislation before Congress. Most recently, Aultman testified in favor of the Heartbeat Protection Act. Introduced on January 12, 2017, the bill would ban abortions after...

    April 19, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – In the past, among pro-life activists – both Catholic and otherwise – you’d find the biggest fans of the pope. Pope John Paul II was often touted as the worldwide leader of the pro-life movement and Pope Benedict XVI regarded as a major contributor to the intellectual defense of life. But the situation after 5 years of Pope Francis’ pontificate is very different indeed. Pro-life activists all over the world today will tell you that while they continue to pray for the pope, they are unhappy with the direction the Pope is taking the Church....

    Planned Parenthood complained that two new laws enacted in Tennessee to deny tax payer funding for abortions "hurt women of color." Sarah Wallet, the medical director for Planned Parenthood of Greater Memphis, asserted "this legislation is racist. Women of color are especially dependent on government funding for their abortions. To deny them access to public monies for this purpose does them irreparable harm." Though the legislation does not block abortions financed by organizations or individuals using non-government sources of funding, Wallet was still adamant in her objections. "The original mission of Planned Parenthood as envisioned by founder Margaret Sanger was...

    Willie Parker knows that a lot of people hate him. Such knowledge is unavoidable, given the fact that people often shout at him as he is entering a clinic to perform abortions. How does he get through it with the knowledge that he is so hated? In response to this question, Parker simply says, “I channel the courage of the civil rights legacy.” In other words, he’s more than just a modern day St. Paul as we learned in the last installment of this series. He’s Martin Luther King, Jr., too.Parker may be able to provide a source of “courage” to...

    Former FBI Director James Comey told George Stephanopoulos of ABC News in an interview broadcast on Sunday night that he “deeply” respects former President Barack Obama “and his higher loyalty to the values I care a lot about” but that current President Donald Trump is “morally unfit” to be president. When Obama, who Comey believes has a “higher loyalty to the values I care a lot about,” served in the Illinois state legislature, he repeatedly opposed a bill that would have treated babies who survived late-term abortions as “persons” who have the same constitutional rights as any other person. “I...

    Any health care facility providing abortions in Tennessee will no longer receive any government funding, thanks to a new state law. The amount of state-funded health care will not be cut, just transferred to health care organizations that do not kill the unborn, Live Action reports: “Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam signed a bill this week that will soon strip Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities of state funding. The state will now request a federal waiver which allows them to bar TennCare, Tennessee’s Medicaid program, from giving money to any abortion facility.” “Instead of directing funding towards abortionists, TennCare money...

    PORTLAND, ORE. A federal judge has dismissed a tax evasion charge against a man who describes himself as a Christian who refuses to give money to the government to support abortion. The Oregonian/OregonLive reported Thursday the judge ruled that the government failed to provide evidence that Michael Bowman tried to conceal or mislead government officials. Prosecutors accused Bowman of not filing an accurate tax return since at least 1997. Bowman said he's been up front with the Internal Revenue Service, refusing to file a return or pay taxes since 1999 without some accommodation afforded to him for religious beliefs. The...

    Students at hundreds of schools across the country walked out of class on Wednesday to to remember the lives lost and pain caused from abortion as well as to protest taxpayer dollars going to Planned Parenthood. More than 300 students or student groups at American high schools and colleges walked out of class at 10am for a moment of silence, according to Students for Life of America (SFLA), which helped get students organized. The idea was inspired by California student Brandon Gillespie, who wanted to highlight whether schools would practice a double standard on student protests. “Along with being a...

    Abortion activists with Planned Parenthood complained that two new laws signed by Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam this week will “hurt women of color.” Implying a possible racist motivation, the abortion chain’s Tennessee branch slammed the governor Wednesday because he signed two laws to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups of state taxpayer dollars. “This hurts patients. It prevents them from seeing a healthcare provider they choose. Specifically, in our area, reproductive healthcare is difficult to access for some people,” said Sarah Wallet, the medical director for Planned Parenthood of Greater Memphis. “There’s a lot of stigma surrounding reproductive healthcare....

    Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam signed two new laws this week to ensure that no state tax dollars go to Planned Parenthood and other groups that do abortions. One of the new laws (HB 2251) directs the state to request a federal government waiver to completely defund abortion facilities from the taxpayer-funded TennCare, the state Medicaid program. The legislature passed the bill in March. The second law (SB 2494 / HB 2262) codifies existing policy established in 2011 by the Haslam administration, which prioritizes health departments to receive Title X family planning funds rather than Planned Parenthood abortion facilities in the...

The video showed two students walking through the display and one of them kicking and pulling up several white crosses. The cemetery of the innocents display included dozens of white crosses and a sign that said, “Each cross represents 10 babies that die by abortion each day.” WHIO TV 7 reports university...

    FULL TITLE: Possible Trafficking? Alabama Abortion Clinic Cited For Failure to Report Child Sex Abuse on 13-Year Old Girl Montgomery, AL – The Reproductive Health Services abortion business in Montgomery, Alabama, has been cited by the Alabama Department of Public Health for failing to comply with mandatory child abuse reporting requirements, leading to concerns that a 13-year old girl may have been trafficked. A recently released inspection report dated January 26, 2018, described the citations involved failing to report a pregnant girl who received two abortions at Reproductive Health Services within 15 months.

    As Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before Congress about the company’s failure to protect user’s personal data, the social media monopoly is facing more charges of censoring conservative voices. Aric Nesbitt, a former member of the Michigan House of Representatives and state lottery commissioner, wanted to amplify his announcement for State Senate on Facebook, so he submitted it the way any candidate or company would. But the ad was quickly rejected “because it doesn’t follow our Advertising Policies. We don’t allow ads that contain shocking, disrespectful or sensational content, including ads that depict violence or threats of violence,”...

Michael Steppling was caught in a laid-back pose with both arms up over his head when his mother, Sarah Kelleher Steppling, had an ultrasound at 38 weeks in her pregnancy with him. Michael continued to sleep in the same position after he was born, and his easygoing demeanor emerged even more clearly after his mom had...

    It seems like once a month well-informed Catholics need to mop up after Pope Francis. The latest spill? A long and undisciplined “Apostolic Exhortation” entitled Gaudete et Exsultate. It appears carefully timed, coming out the day after a conference of orthodox Catholics held in Rome to address the “crisis” Francis has caused inside the Church. Its contents? Mostly mixed wisdom about living the spiritual life.The Real Threat: Too Much Pro-Life Fervor One section in the document will afflict the afflicted and comfort the comfortable. It subtly jabs at pro-life activists, and gives handy talking points to pro-abortion politicians. Especially...

    A number of prominent media outlets noticed how sharply Pope Francis veered from the positions of his predecessors by labeling immigration as important of an issue as abortion in his new exhortation Gaudete et Exsultate. And leftist clerics and Church observers, like Father James Martin, S.J., celebrated the exhortation for its jabs at pro-life, doctrine-supporting Catholics. “Caring for migrants and the poor is as holy a pursuit as opposing abortion, Pope Francis declared in a major document issued by the Vatican on Monday morning,” Jason Horowitz at the New York Times began. “Pushing back against conservative critics within the church...
